Co.Lab Writer + Director Program

Supported by Copyright Agency Limited’s Cultural Fund

***Expressions of Interest for 2017 will open later in the year***

With support from The Copyright Agency Limited’s Cultural Fund, Malthouse Theatre is calling for expressions of interest from independent writer and director teams who are interested in working collaboratively to create a treatment for a new work.

Malthouse Theatre is looking for collaborations between writers and directors to develop ideas in partnership. This seeding initiative provides independent artists with time, space and opportunity to come together and hatch an idea. This is a rare opportunity for skilled artists to test out new partnerships and be supported in the early stages of a new work’s development.

Malthouse Theatre is committed to diversifying the voices we hear on our stages, and strongly encourage Expressions of Interest from Indigenous artists, LGBTIQA+ artists and artists from a culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds. Our staff are available to speak with CALD artists or arts organisations about this opportunity. 

Please note, artists should only be involved in one application to Co.Lab.
